Any possibility the "cassette button" on the radio is toggled to the cassette function? When trying to use the radio.

My guess is that you have dirty/corroded contacts in the buttons. I've had some of that trouble.

I fixed my station switch with a big squirt of WD-40 along the edge of the lever. The buttons on the radio are water resistant , so squirting them won't work.

All buttons etc are working OK. Cassete is working OK. My question is "Is it easy to get to the radio?" What do I need to remove in order to inspect the radio????

John, my question was how to remove the radio. I need to inspect the cables/wires that are connected to the radio

To remove the radio.



take seat off and there are 2 acorn nuts under the front part of the seat. These hold the rear of the plastic cover on.



Open door for gas tank,look for 2 plastic lock arms, one on each side, flip them to the unlock position.



Take the two covers that are on the side of the forks out



Take out left and right fairing pockets. There are 2 10mm bolts, one each side. Take them out and the plastic piece that is holding the radio comes off.



This gives you access to the wiring that pugs into the radio.



If I have missed something, someone will be along to correct.
